For the past six months, the Ola Electric scooter has been making headlines. Ola Electric has been quite active, from completing the world’s largest two-wheeler plant in Tamil Nadu to getting its electric scooter ready and even launching a nationwide hyper charging network. Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO of Ola Electric, has released a video on Twitter showing himself riding the Ola Electric scooter, implying that the scooter is now ready for commercial introduction.
The footage shows Aggarwal riding the Ola Electric scooter on Bengaluru streets for the first time, giving us our first look at the two-wheeler in metal. The video also shows that the scooter has a sizable under-seat storage capacity, with room for two half-face helmets. The tweet also emphasizes that the scooter would have strong 0-60 kph acceleration, implying that the scooter will feature a reasonable-sized electric motor and a battery.
Based on the Energy Appscooter, the Ola electric scooter is expected to have a range of 100-150 km and features such as a replaceable Lithium-ion battery, digital instrument panel, cloud connectivity, alloy wheels, and telescopic suspension upfront.
The Ola future plant is being developed at the cost of around Rs. 2,400 crore. The firm has stated that the first phase of activities at the factory would commence within the next several months. The plant will initially employ approximately 2,000 people, expanding to 10,000 once fully operating.
The facility’s construction will take around 10 million person-hours. The fully functioning facility will be built to Industry 4.0 standards and will have a capacity of 10 million electric scooters per year. In Phase 1, the power will be two million units per year. The factory will feature ten general assembly lines and produce a scooter every two seconds and 25,000 batteries per day.
Apart from being marketed in India, the scooters made in India will be shipped to Europe, the United Kingdom, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand. The colossal scale guarantees low pricing on the Ola electric scooter, which will compete in the sector with the Bajaj Chetak, Ather 450X, TVS iQube, and others.
